'We have already bought material': Job loss fears grip Boeing suppliers as nearly 100 fuselages that were bound for 737-MAX facility sit outside Kansas factory as production on troubled aircraft halts

Airplane fuselages bound for Boeing's 737 Max production facility sit in storage at their

Boeing suppliers are bracing for a possible halt in production of the 737-MAX to take place in January. The grounding of the planemaker's fast-selling aircraft will likely result in lost revenues for hundreds of suppliers. Boeing has continued to purchase parts from some suppliers at a production rate higher than its own, in order to keep the supply chain fluid and avoid major disruptions when the MAX returns to service. But photos show there are dozens of 737-MAX fuselages sitting outside a factory in Wichita, Kansas. Spirit AeroSystems receives nearly 80% of revenue from Boeing as it makes the fuselage, pylons, thrust reverser, wing leading edges and engine nacelles. Spirit has continued to churn out parts for the jet at a rate of up to 52 units per month, even as Boeing cut its own production to 42 per month - and at least 90 fuselages are now sitting on the concrete waiting to go. The suspension of MAX production will pressure suppliers that are relying on the demand from Boeing. If parts supply companies stop production, it will be difficult for them to quickly restart their factories, and that could further delay any startup of Boeing´s assembly lines. The Max was grounded worldwide in March after the second of two deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia that killed a total of 346 people.

 Airbus’ A321neo has a pitch-up issue -same as 737 Max, but NO REPORTING!

Is the press anti Boeing (hence anti-Trump) and covering up for airbus?  Probably

An article the other day about the recent Russian crash stated that the pilot, who had over 1500 hours in the type of craft that crashed, had never landed it manually. Mind boggling.

Pilots don't know how to FLY anymore because of an over-reliance on technology and can't take over when the plane systems fail, say US aviation officials

  • The US Federal Aviation Administration has warned that pilots are over-dependent on high-tech airplanes and do not know how to fly when they fail
  • The aviation regulator in a report to the International Civil Aviation Organisation said pilots need to become confident again behind the controls of airplanes 
  • The warning comes after automated stabliser malfunctions caused two Boeing 737 Max jets to crash in Indonesia and Ethiopia, grounding the fleet worldwide 

The damning statement came from US Federal Aviation Administration in a report sent to the International Civil Aviation Organisation, an arm of the United Nations

The FAA says pilots should be trained to be confident at the controls the way they were before the advent of technology that allows them to switch on the automatic pilot on take off and turn it off just before landing, reports the Times

The FAA warned that an over-reliance on automated systems in high-tech aircraft has left pilots clueless about flying, especially when flight systems fail. The warning comes in the wake of two Boeing 737 Max jet crashes in Indonesia (pictured above) and Ethiopia.

Seems that the Boeing 737Max's real problem is pilots can'y fly, poorly trained, especially in the 3rd world and CORRUPT airlines!  Boeing was picked on because they are American and the world hates Trump.  Airbus has been killing people for years with their "smart" planes.....

Whistleblower says Ethiopian Airlines accessed maintenance records for Boeing 737 MAX jet the day after it crashed amid culture of corruption that saw shoddy repairs signed off and staff beaten up if they complained
